2012. welcome to cbs am morning. a bus explosion tel aviv, threatening peace talks in the middle east. we'll have reports from across the region. warning president obama and congress, if we go over the fiscal cliff there is no stopping the damage. superstorm sandy is still having an impact. this time on thanksgiving travelers. we begin with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds. >> seeing the rockets back and forth as this conflict has been escalating. this is a new level of violence. >> in tel aviv a bomb rips through a city bus. >> comes after a week of attacks between the israeli defense forces and palestinians in gaza. >> efforts to end the fighting between israel and hamas so far have come up short. >> the rocket attacks on israeli towns must end. secretary of state hillary clinton met with palestinian leaders this morning as talks
7:01am
continue to end the blood shed. >> at this stage nobody really knows. millions of americans head out to their thanksgiving destinations. >> it is game on for more than 43 million americans hitting the roads. >> more than 3 million of us are expected to fly to our destinations this holiday. >> it's going to be so jammed up, listen to this, tsa agents say passengers are being asked to grope themselves. birth control pills should be sold over the counter say a number of doctors. shake-up on sesame street. a man behind elmo announces he will be leaving the show after another accusation by underage boys. >> ban public nudity. and score from high school basketball that's hard to believe. 138 points from one guy. if you don't believe me, you don't know jack. >> and all that matters. >> thanksgiving united states of
7:02am
america and you're taking on quite something. >> find out who is spending three days waiting in line for these black friday sales and go shopping at their house. >> on "cbs this morning." >> let's take a look at the clip. >> i thought you were going to go in for a kiss. okay. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." i'm charlie rose in new york. norah o'donnell is in washington. we've been expecting an announcement of cease fire between israel and hamas for nearly 24 hours. it stale has not happened. and both sides are still trading air attacks across the gaza/israel border. >> this morning israeli officials say a bomb went off on a bus in tel aviv. allen pizzey is there. good morning, allen. >> reporter: the bus was right next to the israeli defense force headquarters when it happened and fortunately
7:03am
escaped. police have cordoned off the area. no word on whether they found the bomber. police have described it as a terrorist attack. this man agrees. >> human lives. on the other side they don't consider it at a factor. >> reporter: the bomb will also have an effect on an effort to arrange a cease fire. bombs on the street are not mentioned in the wording as causing a problem, but israelis will see it as one more reason not to trust hamas. the movement did not claim credit for the attack. when it was announced in gaza there was celebration in the streets. i'm allen pizzey in tel aviv. >> allen, thanks. more attacks.
7:04am
gaza city had a very close encounter with one israeli air strike. >> reporter: fighter jets have been passing over gaza city overnight with huge explosions. massive blast just outside the hotel that blew in windows of my room. i ran into the hall to make sure that our colleagues were okay. nobody was injured inside that hotel. more than 100 people have been killed and more than 1,000 wounded in this conflict. >> this is what it looked and sounded like when an israeli air strike pounded a block away from where we were staying. journalists inside scrambled for cover. nowhere is considered safe in gaza city. it was one of a number of attacks that struck an area where a lot of foreign journalists are staying, covering this side of the conflict. it landed in a soccer field in a neighborhood of apartment buildings and hotels.
7:05am
it's just a close-up example of the barrage of attacks that have come by air, land and sea, pounding this strip. last night was one of the worst yet in this fight. dozens of rounds into gaza and fighter jets kept up their bombings through dawn. their attacks were sustained and re relentless. they leveled a city block where the interior ministry used to stand. israeli military said it was a command and control center for hamas which makes it a legitimate target.
7:06am
7:07am
7:08am
7:09am
that's the real interesting
7:10am
question, what happens to the short term deal that then allows them to take on the difficult task tasks? >> what's likely they can make that short term deal? >> it's interesting how you read the leverage. there's an argument that basically if the so-called fiscal cliff happens, taxes go up for everybody. then you have a conversation about -- not about raising taxes, but then about cutting taxes. they will have already gone up. the question is whether the president has a great deal more leverage. he basically then is able to say it's because the republicans were too stuck that they went up in in the first place. so there is an argument for actually -- because the cliff isn't an actual cliff. because nothing will happen the day after that is catastrophic there's an argument for actually maybe letting this happen. the president gets even more leverage. >> there's talk about trying to do two things in two phases protect the middle class and let
7:11am
the rest of the stuff go over the cliff for maximum pressure. john dickerson, thank you. slowing down air travelers across the country. nearly 100 flights were canceled this morning at chicago's main airport, o'hare and midway. more than 400 other flights were delayed for an average of 90 minutes. both airports support near zero visibility and they warned that problems could last into the afternoon. that threatens to create a domino effect of delays at airports from coast to coast. most of the people are traveling this morning are taking the highway. millions of them could feel the impact of superstorm sandy when they hit the road. to jim objectionaxelrod is out there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. more americans will travel this thanksgiving than they did the year before. 43 million americans will travel 50 miles or more on this holiday weekend.
7:12am
and the aftermath of superstorm sandy could make the usual thanksgiving holiday crunch even worse. hurricane sandy rocked the nation's most populated and busiest travel corridor less than a month ago. now it's forced millions to rethink and re-evaluate their holiday travel plans. >> the economic impact could be substantial. people travel, they spend money. >> reporter: sandy damaged or destroyed a quarter million vehicles. personal and commercial cars and trucks flooded along with car dealerships and rental lots. the result is a rental car shortage during the busiest travel period of the year. >> rental car agencies are saying they're bringing more vehicles into the region. when you're talking about a loss of a quarter million vehicles we're talking about an awful lot of vehicles that have to come into this region to make up the difference. >> reporter: fuel rationing from sandy will continue in new york city the rest of the week despite the holiday. and drivers nationwide will have to dig a bit deeper to fill up.
7:13am
the national average price of gas is just about $3.40 a gallon, a drienecline of 40 cents a gallon since october but still on track to set an all-time thanksgiving high. more than 20,000 flights were canceled and airports were closed for days. that industry was quick to bounce back as 3 million travelers are expected to fly this week. >> lingering side effects or after effects of airlines either operationally or financially, everything should be all systems go for this weekend. >> back on the new jersey turnpike, imagine these roads in a couple of hours. more than a million new jersey residents expected to be on the move today. although from my experience on the new jersey turnpike probably not moving as quickly as they would like. charlie? >> jim, remember what my mother used to say to me. just because you love cars you don't have to be the fastest and
7:14am
best driver on the road. >> your mother was a smart woman. i'll keep that in mind. >> jim axelrod, thank you. robert f. kennedy's youngest son was accused of assaulting two nurses earlier this year. as jeff glor reports, the defendant says he just wanted to give the newborn child some fresh air. good morning. >> charlie, good morning. during this five-day trial, prosecution was trying to prove that kennedy was harassing nurses and putting his child in danger. kennedy said he was innocent, waiving his right to a jury and letting the judge make the call. the >> the only people who acted inappropriately, the only people the judge found who create this had situation that resulted in what everyone saw in the videotape were the nurses. >> reporter: back in january, cameras capture edd kennedy trying to leave a westchester hospital

with his two-day old son beau. that's when two nurses thinks he was violating hospital policy tried to stop him. and a seven-minute confrontation unfolded. in court one nurse testified kennedy twisted his arm. the other accused him of kicking her. >> douglas and molly are incredibly thrilled by the end of the nightmare to receive an un unequivocal statement from the judge that douglas did not commit any crimes is something that they are very grateful for. >> reporter: in a ten-page decision judge john donohue wrote that the nurses chose to physically confront the defendant and that kennedy was calm and did not raise his voice or threaten them in any way. the women could still file a civil lawsuit. kennedy's lawyer says the court has spoken and his famous last name has nothing to do with it.
7:16am
>> people shouldn't think he received preferential treatment because he's a kennedy. he went through this nightmare because he's a kennedy. >> kennedy himself never took the stand. his not guilty decision came on what would be the 87th birthday of his father. norah? an explosion that devastated an indianapolis neighborhood, police reportedly are talking with mark leonard and mon sechlt rrate shirley. they live next door to john and jennifer longworth, the young couple who died in the explosion. indianapolis star they were told believe a gas or stove may have been tampered with in their home. single-game scoring record. jack taylor in iowa, 138 points last night against faith baptist college. you heard that right.

8:16am
over-the-counter? >> the risks extend to potentially women not being able to appropriately select themselves, potentially checking off a checklist and overlooking an underlying health problem such as high blood pressure undiagnosed cancer that's estrogen dependent. i think patients should see their physicians to make the appropriate choice of the appropriate contraception for them. >> is there any age range? if this happens, does that mean 14, 15 16-year-old girls can walk into the pharmacy and get this? >> that remains to be said. this has yet to receive fda approval. so that has not been standardized. there are certain products that are available over-the-counter and women need to be 17 to access the products. we don't know if that's parental consent. we don't know anything just yet. >> doctor, what do you think this recommendation means about the future of birth control and making it more ready accessible?
8:17am
>> i think acog is acknowledging the fact that we have a problem in terms of an unintended pregnancy rate. i think pills will be more ready available. there really remains the question of will this be covered by insurance companies? will people be able to afford it once it becomes readily available? i think it's a way in which we can acknowledge yet another form of birth control that's acceptable acceptable. >> do you think this is a good thing? i have friends calling me saying this is great news and others saying, wait, this is not so fast. >> i agree, not so fast. i think women should realize, this is not a pass this is not a get out of going to your doctor pass. women should see their health care professional at least once a year. they need breast exams, pap smears need to be screened for stds. they need an ongoing dialogue about where they are at this stage of their life to determine what is the most appropriate form of birth control.
